The dancers are lying face down on the floor. After a while their backs begin to twitch and their bodies become energized. We feel the moment - totally in the now, with the beat washing over us. We want to join in and get carried away …
MOMENTUM creates a tangible feeling of movement connecting the dancers and audience in their shared space. The rising energy levels, combined with increasing exhaustion become a shared state which develops into a driving element of the performance. Together with a DJ and light designers, CocoonDance experiment with the connections, similarities and thresholds between movement and emotion. And we are right in the middle of it.
“A remarkable work about our unfulfillable desire for oneness; you just know you are going to get carried along." Melanie Suchy, Kölner Stadtanzeiger.
